2018 Changes for 1098-T

In previous years, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) we billed to your student account for the calendar (tax) year. Due to a change to institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we will report in Box 1 the amount of QTRE paid from all sources during the year.

Depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are a dependent), whether you were considered full or half-time enrolled, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. (You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970, page 9.)

The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098-T may assist you in completing IRS Form 8863 – the form used for calculating the education tax credits that a taxpayer may claim as part of your tax return.

The University of Tulsa is unable to provide you with individual tax advice, but should you have questions, you should seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.

Payment Options

Student account payments, employee account payments, and departmental deposits can be made at our teller windows in McClure Hall, or online.

Tuition Payment Plans

Payment plans are offered for each standard academic semester. For the fall semester; we offer a 6 payment, 5 payment, 4 payment, or 3 payment plan. For the spring semester, we offer a 5 payment, 4 payment, and 3 payment plan. There is a 3 payment and 2 payment plan for the summer term.

Payment plans are intended for current semester charges only. Prior unpaid charges would not be included in a semester payment plan. Financial aid is first applied to the current semester university charges, a payment plan can be established for only the remaining amount. If a tuition account is completely paid with financial aid, a payment plan cannot be established.

Payment plans may be set up by accessing the TU Portal and then View and Pay my Account.

Participation in a payment plan does not guarantee enrollment in future semesters or a release of transcript or diploma. A failed or delinquent payment plan may result in cancellation of enrollment, will result in an enrollment hold for future semesters, and denial of access to transcripts and diplomas. The payment plan would need to be brought current prior to release of enrollment in future semesters and to grant access to transcripts and diplomas.

Student Health Insurance

All students enrolled at The University of Tulsa are required to have health insurance coverage that provides benefits in the state of Oklahoma. This can be accomplished in one of two ways:

  1. The student can obtain coverage offered through the university or
  2. Students can obtain coverage provided through another carrier (such as coverage under a dependent student’s parent’s policy) as long as that coverage provides benefits for claims made in Oklahoma.

This approach to health insurance coverage is to ensure all enrolled students have access to health care. Students will have the cost of coverage added to their university bill each semester. However, the charge will be removed upon verification of other appropriate coverage. Verification must be received by August 31 for students enrolling in the fall and January 31 for students enrolling for the first time in the spring.

If you have adequate coverage, please go to the www.studentcenter.uhcsr.com/tulsa for instructions on how to opt out of this coverage and to have the charge removed from your account. If you wish to keep the coverage, you do not need to take any action, or you can go to www.studentcenter.uhcsr.com/tulsa and click Enroll.

Don’t miss these helpful videos by United Health Care to teach you about your benefits and how to effectively utilize them.
